Day 60 09/12/2013 KM17549 Ushuaia – Toward the north

Montevideo is the goal in 10 days and about 4000-5000km of road. Some mechanical troubles with the motor which consumed oil more and more. I hope that the program won't be modified!

I went up to the north to avoid a new storm announced for tomorrow. Crossing with a ferry from the "Tierra del fuego" towards Chile after come back to Argentina. Night in a « wild camping ».
